There is one Democratic-held open seat in Harris County, and that’s HD139, which has been vacated by now-Mayor Sylvester Turner. Four candidates are running to succeed Turner; I have interviews with three of them. First up is Jerry Ford, Jr, a former all-conference baseball player and student activist at TSU, where he served in the student Senate and co-founded Untouchable Creation INC, a non-profit organization concentrated on bringing interest of other African-Americans back into HBCUs, as well as the Texas Southern Young Democrats. Ford is a radio personality on multiple stations, a political columnist for the Forward Times, a spokesperson for the Black Lives Matter movement in Houston, and would be the youngest member of the Legislature if elected. Here’s what we talked about:
